Thompson, Priscilla Jane
Gleanings of Quiet Hours

- INTRODUCTION.

INTRODUCTION.

In presenting this little volume of poems to the public, (mostly of which are closely associated with a proscribed race,) the writer's sole and earnest endeavor, is to bring to light their real life and character; and if in any of these humble and simple rhymes, a passage or thought may chance prove a medium, through which the race may be elevated, or benefited, if only in the private mind of some reader, the writer feels, that her efforts is fully repaid.

THE AUTHORESS.

DEDICATED
To
MY SISTER AND BROTHERS
